SDG vulnerability frameworks to leave no one behind

June 2023

“Leaving no one behind” is the transformative promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is an indisputable commitment by United Nations Member States to eradicate poverty in all its forms, end discrimination and exclusion, and reduce vulnerabilities and obstacles that leave people behind.

The present report sets out SDG vulnerability frameworks, which were developed to encourage countries to produce disaggregated data on vulnerable populations and make them available to policymakers. The four frameworks on gender, disability, children and young people, and older persons aim to facilitate and improve data production and dissemination of indicators related to vulnerable groups, including monitoring and reporting on the national and regional impact of policies to leave no one behind. The frameworks were developed following a detailed assessment of SDG indicators and their respective metadata across the 2030 Agenda.
